About hart house

Hart House has been recognized as the centre for the re-imagination and reinvention of the undergraduate student experience at the University of Toronto. It’s a place that welcomes both campus and community to explore cultural, intellectual and recreational activities.

Through its support of ten student-led Committees, including the Hart House Debates and Dialogue Committee, and various Clubs, Hart House provides leadership opportunities for students and encourages the exploration of ideas, perspectives and issues of importance to not only students, but to society at large. Hart House has been recognized as the University of Toronto’s centre for education and discovery outside the classroom since it first opened its doors in 1919.  Hart House is where students come together, across their differences, in common pursuit of what the House’s founders termed “high endeavour.”
